Description - Rainforest: Endangered by Dr. Simon Dures
Rainforests are a natural wonder, our planet's green lung. Rainforests are home to over half the world's animal and plant species. Many of our everyday foods originate from these rich habitats, and rainforest plants are used in life-saving medicines. Most importantly, rainforests play a critical role in stabilising our climate; without them, life on Earth would be quite different. Yet, despite their vital importance, rainforests are disappearing at an increasingly alarming rate. This book celebrates these essential ecosystems, looking at both tropical and temperate rainforests around the world, providing a pictorial record of these living wonderlands before they are gone forever.
